TDP predicts new Cong CM from Telangana after by-polls
Senior Telugu Desam Party leader Gali Muddu Krishnama Naidu predicted that Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy will lose his job after the next round of by-elections and the third chief minister after the death of YS Rajasekhara Reddy will be from Telangana region.
Speaking to media persons at Tirupati on Sunday, Muddu Krishnama Naidu was confident that Congress will lose all the 18 assembly seats and one Lok Sabha seat that were going to face by-elections soon.
The by-elections will pose a litmus test to Kiran Kumar Reddy, he added. “There is a tradition in Congress Party of changing chief ministers several times in the state. Apart from it, Kiran Kumar Reddy has been termed as the most inefficient and incapable leader who failed to protect the interests of the state as well as his own district,” he explained.
Gali said Kiran Kumar Reddy had declared a package of Rs 6,000 crore for the district one year ago for creating drinking water sources but he failed to release even Rs 60 crore.
He declared that the chief minister was confined to his native constituency Piler most of the time. He demanded the government to release the drought relief funds for the district, which was reeling under serious drought conditions.
He charged that many of the district officers in Chittoor district were neglecting the implementation of various developmental programmes at the behest of the ruling Congress legislators.
Referring to the ensuing by-polls in the state, Muddu Krishnama Naidu declared that TDP would bag a majority of the assembly seats besides the Nellore Lok Sabha seat.
He said that TDP president N.Chandrababu Naidu would be the next chief minister. Tirupati by-poll is prestigious to the party and all the district party functionaries are working hard for the success of the party candidate, he added.
He said that YSR Congress Party chief Jaganmohan Reddy would be sent behind the bars at any given time. He said that there would be no impact of YSRCP in Tirupati by-poll.
He recalled that unprecedented development in Tirupati was witnessed during TD regime only. Apart from it, he said that Tirupati was the strong base for TD right from the beginning.
